I've just updated my blog to include a 15,000 kilometre "retrospective" on the five 2Cs we've restored. Collectively they've covered 15,000ks - some as low as 1,000 kms and one as high as 8,000 km.

Benelli 2C Restoration

Considering that we started with 40 year old bikes with poor a reputation for reliability, it would seem that some sensible updates can transform these little Italian jewels into very reliable, fun bikes. They may not quite beat an Elsie but you can keep up in the twisties!

Hopefully my mates will keep taking these out each weekend and I'll be able to do a 25,000 .... 50,000 .... am I getting ahead of myself here?
